Digital Storytelling2009–2018

Programs exploring how software and hardware can support new forms of storytelling

Designed and ran programs combining computation, narrative, and design. Programs took different forms—from vacation camps to school day programs in special education classrooms—but centered similar questions: Why are stories so central to human experience and community? How do we tell stories well, and in different media? How can data enrich our storytelling?
